The Internet of Things Boosts ERP as well as Increasing Connectivity

By | 2017-03-31T14:56:57+00:00 March 31st, 2017|ERP, Manufacturing, News|

Manufacturers are enjoying the Internet of Things (the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data) because of the incredible connectivity they share with their industrial products, from their home office all the way down the supply chain. However, this connectivity can do more than simple connect the home office to various devices; it will also significantly impact their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and the business processes these systems support. Evert Bos, our Microsoft Dynamics 365 Operations technical fellow, wrote an article for IndustryWeek.com, explaining more about this digitization of manufacturing and how it can do more than what appears on the surface. The core goal of an ERP system is to provide actionable data and information to company leaders. But collecting accurate data is an ongoing and vexing [...]

The Dangers of Facebook Live

By | 2017-03-02T16:46:28+00:00 March 2nd, 2017|News, Security|

Facebook is, without a doubt, the most popular social media platform, boasting that over one billion people are active users. Since they introduced their Facebook Live feature, which allows users to broadcast what they're doing, saying, etc. to their friends, it's soared in popularity. However, unless you have restricted the platform's privacy settings, you could broadcast your life to the entire world without realizing it. In fact, even if you do restrict these settings, you're still at risk. Your live broadcast may be, what you consider to be, completely harmless. But if you broadcast from your home, you open yourself up to being followed in real life and not just in Facebook. It's easy to then extend this to business dangers. If employees are walking around with what is essentially a broadcast satellite truck in their pocket at all times, you need to [...]

Scam Alert: Imposters Calling as Computer Tech Support

By | 2017-03-02T19:34:02+00:00 January 26th, 2017|News, Security|

Threats from cybercrime are happening at alarming rates. One new tactic is hitting homes and offices that trick people into believing their computer is in critical danger. When someone attempts to take action on these phony warnings, scammers swoop in and hold the computer ransom until payment information is sent. Sikich Security and Compliance Manager, Kevin Bong, talked with TMJ4 in Milwaukee about the forms this scam takes and what to do if you find yourself in this scenario.  […]

The New Microsoft Dynamics AX Playlist on Sikich YouTube

By | 2016-11-29T19:03:58+00:00 August 11th, 2016|AX, News, Videos|

Now Playing…Get the Most out of Microsoft Dynamics AX with Short,Easy Demos on Sikich YouTube Let’s face it, it’s not natural to find end users who describe a technology system for business applications as both “robust” and “easy” simultaneously.  We like to compare this kind of experience with that of a user and his smartphone.  Generally speaking, most users sort through the high-level features and massive functionality to utilize it for their personal ‘top 3’ – something akin to games, social media/photos, and news.  The potential of what a smartphone is truly capable of goes highly untapped.And for personal use, that is acceptable.  But for the high standards of business applications to streamline processes, improve productivity, and really utilize the incredible features and intuitive functionality created with purpose and intent – it’s unacceptable.  That’s why Sikich has created a YouTube channel playlist – with short, easy [...]
